April Showers...

THE PIANO
Hunter is so expressive, like a firework (intended) exploding again and again.
❞ - Henry

THELMA & LOUISE
I took a "fluff" class senior year of high school called Mass Media, and we were allowed to do a project on anything we wanted. My friend Meaghan and I decided to do our project on Brad Pitt,..I had never seen "Thelma & Louise" and found myself obsessed with it. I think I watched it five times by the time my senior year was over. ❞ -Jakey

Curio: Type Is All You Need

Alexa here with your weekly art break.  Although film is a medium that makes meaning with images (with "show, don't tell" as a newbie screenwriter's mantra), it can't be denied that the words spoken in some films have taken on a life of their own; movie quotes are simply part of the vernacular. In that spirit, here are some artists that have cleverly distilled a movie down to its words, sometimes with unexpected results.

 

Kiss Bang Bang by illogicality.   

A Blade Runner moment from Jan Skácelík.

The Usual Suspects by JoE.

Buddy the elf, made in his own words, by Skahfee Studios.

Westley's words, simply put by The Big Harumph.

The Elf thing is cute. And why does that BLADE RUNNER speech still get me to this day. I feel like it's only one of the best monologues of all time. stil sad Rutger Hauer didn't get an Oscar nomination.

I'm with Nathaniel... that 'tears in the rain' is heartbreaking... I've just seen BR recently and I get now why it's such a cult favorite.

And that one from Usual Suspects is so true!! Tragic how a lot of people continues to fall for it.
